Destinations and flights

As restrictions became more flexible around the world and the vaccination campaign spread and offered the possibility of new openings, Emirates began to resume operations on its route network.

In recent months, it has reinstated pilots, cabin crew and other operational employees “who withdrew when the pandemic forced a drastic reduction in flights last year.”

Currently, the company flies to more than 120 cities, what represents 90% of your pre-pandemic network, and plans to restore 70% of its capacity by the end of the year, including the active commissioning of more of its iconic A380 aircraft.

As part of the changes imposed by the coronavirus and the restrictions in the country, in August 2020 the airline decided suspend the return of flights between Buenos Aires and Dubai (with a technical stopover in Rio de Janeiro).

At the time, the announcement stated: “Emirates remains committed to Argentina and we expect to restart our operations in Buenos Aires when it is commercially and operationally feasible to do so. We will make a formal announcement if there is any progress in this regard.”

Emirates began working with Argentina on January 3, 2012 and until March 2020 it operated 4 weekly flights between Dubai and Buenos Aires. But after the pandemic and for the moment, our country is off the radar of operations.

On the other hand, as a tourist destination, Dubai has not been left behind: with vaccination and clear protocols they reopened in July 2020 to foreign visitors.
